After the Yellow Jackets were dismissed from The Sing-Off last night (unjustly, in my opinion — Urban Method totally should have been hitting the road!), they delivered a hilarious, cheese-tastic exit performance of Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping” that had me crying in my whiskey drink that they’re no longer part of the competition.
Watch the suited gents change lyrics, call out the judges, and even give NBC a shout-out below.
The chipper number may just be my favorite reality show exit performance ever, replacing the intentionally awkward Simon-serenade Kristy Lee Cook performed when she got booted from American Idol in season 7. (Let’s not, of course, forget Haley Reinhart and Allison Iraheta’s unforgettable swan songs, speaking of Idol.) The Yellow Jackets simply made me laugh — and that’s the best way to get up again after you’re knocked down, right?
What do you think, PopWatchers? Do any exit performances stand out in your mind? What are your favorites? And are you bummed that the Yellow Jackets were eliminated last night, too?
